The 13-episode Z Nation picks up three years after a zombie virus has decimated the country and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. More from the official description: “Although the antibodies he carries are the world’s last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens themhumankind’s survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.”
Sounds promising, but can it compare to Walking Dead? The series stars Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch, Kellita Smith, Anastasia Baranova, Russell Hodgkinson, and Keith Allan. The series premiere is Friday, Sept. 12 at 10 p.m.
